Compass Datacenters to source HVO for its on-site generators

June 1, 2022 |

In Texas, Compass Datacenters has announced a new partnership with Foster Fuels, making Compass the first data center provider to use Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil-based biodiesel (HVO) to fuel its on-site generators. Foster Fuels will serve as Compass’ preferred green diesel provider, reaffirming both organizations’ commitment to Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction.

“The Foster Fuels partnership is part of our overall strategy to reduce our Scope 1 & 2 GHG emissions and will make our generators far more sustainable,” said Adil Attlassy, Compass Chief Technology Officer. “Based on our results to date, using HVO blended fuels is reducing our generators’ Scope 1 GHG emissions by approximately 85% versus traditional diesel. Additionally, we are significantly reducing particulates and sulfides as compared to fossil fuels, eliminating diesel’s dirty smoke plume.”
